FLOOD alerts have been issued across the UK today thanks to heavy overnight rainfall and rapidly melting snow.
The Met Office has warned that this combination is likely to lead to "localised surface water" and river flooding.
The Environment Agency had by mid-morning issued 53 flood alerts for areas in the south east of England.
Earlier this morning some flooding was reported on Junction 6 (anticlockwise) on the M25.
A total of 305 flood alerts had been issued for the UK and 64 flood warnings - where flooding is "expected."
